No, not mentioned because I want pity

There was a weekly subject for a photo group, titled “I am..”

For me, I posted a photo of my ‘breakfast’ this morning. Some pain medication, and a class of water with the caption “I am.. in constant/chronic pain. Some days are worse than others. But I refuse to give into it.”

This isn’t said to garner pity, or sympathy. If anything, it’s to let people know, if I’m not walking quite as fast, it has nothing to do with being lazy. If I’m not talking, just nodding to you to show I’m paying attention, it’s because I don’t want my voice to betray that the pain is trying to limit me.

I refuse to give in, but do have limitations.. that I ignore, then pay for at a later time.
